Singular Use For Bread.
Brend is used for many purposes, but
the most singular use may be seen in
some of the great watch factories.
More than forty loaves of fresh bread
are required each day in one sucb factory. It appears that from tbe earliest
tlnies lu the history of watchmaking It
bus been the custom of watchmakers
to reduce fresh bread to tlie form of
dough by steaming and kneading.
They use this dough for removing oil
and chips that naturally adhere In the
course of manufacture to pieces as
small as the parts of a wntcli. The
oil Is nbsorbed by the dough and the
chips stick to It and there is no other
known substance which can be used
ns a wiper without leaving some small
���Kirtiou attached to the thing wiped.

I'ldilor Review,
Sir,---will you allow me a corner in
your interesting pages to repeat a few
words 1 heard droppedas I walked alone,
the streets of Cumberland a lew days
ago, Two men stood and were discussing strike affairs, Not wishing to be inquisitive t continued walking on, however I heard one of these gentlem*;!! say
Oh, well, Tom, some of these would
not care if the strike lasted forever, they
are doing belter than ever they did iii
their lives. This man certainly spoke
tile truth for once in bis life anyway, If
I am allowed 1 will cite a case that came
to my notice a few days ago, which will
I think confirm what that man said.
Some time ago one of our road foremen asked one of the strikers to w irk
on th" roads. His reply was oh, no, I'm
doing too well for anything like that, or
words to that effect, However n lew-
days later new ideas sprang into his head
and he went to Ihe boss aud asked it he
couldn't arrange to let him work two
days per week. " 1 don't want any
more than two days as I would have to
forfeit my strike pay if I worked any
more, you see I am getting 12 per week
and if 1 can net two days on the roads 1
will be equal with the man that works
This would have been n fine stunt: two
days on the roads, four days clearing
land makes six, and tlie seventh to pray
for the strike to continue. Hut it didn't
come off, for as soon as the boss recovered from tlie shock be had strength
enough left to say No Sir, you will have
to quit one or tlie other.
Now Mr. Kdilor, wouldn't that " jar "
you ?

Al the annual meeting of the Co-
i mux Creamery Association last
j Thursday evening, after the regular
business had been transacted, Dr.
Simpson was introduced by a letter
from Major Snow, .The doctor ex-
plained 'that he had discovered a
menus of killing off all destructive
earth worms, such as potato worms,
cut.worms, angle worms, cabbage
worms, wire worms, their larvae,
etc., and all kinds of insects that
attack and destroy fruit and fruit
trees. The powder is composed of
well known and proven fertilizing
ingredients, and is combined with
his secr.t discovery which causes a
gas to form a i soon as moisture
strikes it, and is death to all pests
and the ground is fertilized, The
powder is sown on the ground oue
month or six weeks before plaining
and again in June- the first year,
and once the year following if necessary.
For spraying the powder is mixed with water and sprayed on fruit
trees just before the bloom appears���all insect life is killed���a
little of the powder mixed in the
earth at the roots of the tree kills
ail genus that are injurious to the
tree, will cause new blood���clean
blood��� to flow into tbe tree, killing all cankerous and fungus growths in the batk etc.
In the course of his remarks the
doctor said : "Some years ,140 t
went out to India to make au experiment with the tobacco worm
Which had been playing havoc with
the crops out there, and was successful. Down in Texas Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia and
Other southern states I have experimented with all sorts of vegetable worms, cotton worms, linseed
worms and other such pests, and in
Canada 1 have tried my powder on
the wheat worms. I have tlso
shown rose growers how to kill ff
the lice that iuiest the bushes. I
believe that 1 have covered the
whole field. My Dowder is not a
poison. Ou the contrary it help*
fertilize the place where it is put,
and still is cheap, and t'. at's all
there's to it."
The Doctor invited all to attend
a demonstration at Mr, Hallidiy's
firm the next day, where a small
piece of well manured land was
plowed, and about two-thirds of it
was sowu with 70 lbs of the powder

about six weeks Mr. Halliday will
plant cabbages carrots arid onions
on the land. In June the doctor
will be around again and will further demonstrate the matter. In
the meantime those interested are
requested to visit the place frequently to watch developments.
The Doctor took a smalt quantity of earth, mixed some of his
powder with it aud placed it on top
of a post. Only one mothy looking
worm appeared to be in the lot. and
shortly afterwards it was pretty
sick, then a number of white egg's
became visible and swelled up to
the size of very fine shot���all dead.
Afterwards angleworms and cutworms were placed in some earth
aud a little of the powder mixed in
aud the whole moistened and covered up. In about a minute the
doctor said " I think the worms
are dead now," and sure enough
they were, also a small black spider
which had got mixed up in the
mass was very sick.
The Doctor states that anyone
wishing to try this powder for
themselves can get a quantity from
Hon. Mr. Ross the Minister of
Agriculture at Victoria. He also
asserts that worms destroy three
t times as much produce as is grown.
J If this be the case, this powder will

The latest way of clearing land,
along the Campbell River road, as
practised by a party of settlers with
a motor, last Wednesday does not
appear to have been very successful, as the car was not heavy enough for the purpose. The experiment caused much excitement
and universal regret is felt at the
untimely failure.
An Old Hand
How To Grow Tall
A maii's organ and those of his
bones which are not subject to pres
sure grow continuously until he is
forty years old; that is to say, the
heart should become stronger, the
capacity of the lungs increase, and
the brain should develop steadily
until the fourth decade of life.
Also one should wear a larger hat
at the age of forty  than at  thirty.
A man ceases to grow tall, however, at the beginning of the third
decade, because after that time the
downward pressure exerted by the
weight of the body while in the
erect position compresses the vertebrae or small bones in the spine,
the discs of cartilige between them
the pelvis, and the thigh bones,
and the pressure overcomes the
natural elasticity of the disc and
the growth of the thigh bones.
However, a British scientist contends that were a man quadruped,
and therefore freed from the downward pressure produced by his
weight upon his spinal column, he
would continue to grow in height
for ten years longer than he does
at present, since it has been found
that bones uot subjected to compression increase up to the fourth
Forty-Five Mile Exten-
tion of E. & N.
It is aumouueed that the end of
the year will witness the completion of a forty-five mile section of
the E. & N. Railway along the
east coast of Vancouver Island, between Parksville and Courtenay.
A shipment of 1000 tons of steel
rails from the steel ��� works at the
Canadian Soo is now enroute to the
coast via the C. P. R. and will be
forwarded from Vancouver to
Parksville. Additional shipments
will follow shortly.
Fifteen miles of the line north of
Parksville have been graded and
construction of the remaining thirty
miles is in progress. A sjxty-five
pound rail will be laid. ��5uTveys
of the line for a considerable distance beyond Courtenay have been
completed and a good deal of exploratory work in the northern
portion of the island has already
iiecu completed.

Mr. Idiens, we understand, has
sold some Soo acres of timber this
week to a Cumberland syndicate,
with 10 acres of land, situate near
McNeil's on the Roy road to Cumberland, for a mill site to be called
the Royston Mill Co., Limited.
The plant, a ;'ongst which is a no
horse power boiler has been ordered, and operations will be commenced at once. This should help the
people who intend locating at
Royston, as at the present time the
demand for lumber is very much
greater than the supply, and building operations on that account are
at a standstill.
Fifty Years Ago
A proclamation was issued by
the Govenor-General of British
Columbia, creating the additional
toll of 1 shilling for every pound of
goods goinj by either route on the
Fraser River to the mines. The
object in increasing the toll is
stated in the proclamation viz, for
the construction of the great routes
of communication throughou t the
country, and to provide funds for
carrying on the same successfully.
According to the Monetary
Times, Canadian dealers have imported into Canada 150 cars of eggs
this season, representing nearly
2,ooff,oo6 ' dozen, ~npon which
duty of 3 cents a dozen was paid,
equal to $60,000. The farmers
and poultry keepers have a great
leeway to'make up in this matter.
Canada ought not to go outside her
borders for eggs.

Money runs away a sight easier
than water. It beats mercury for
getting away. About the only
wag you're dead sure to keep it
and get the best out of it is to
spend it properly, and then it
comes back in a hurry. If you
keep on doing this right along
you'll likely get more money than
you want, and have to give it away
like Carnegie and Rockefeller. But
most generally that don't happen,
specially if your conscience is
working right.

The Navy Question
On Thursday evening hist Mr.
J. \V. DeB, Karris, a Vancouver
lawyer, who is solicitor for the parties who are arbitrating with the
railway company about the price of
the land taken for right-of-way
for the electric road west of Courtenay, was in town, and embraced
the opportunity of addressing the
people here on The Navy Question,
which just now is creating considerable comment throughout the
country, on account of the tactics
employed by tlie political parties at
Ottawa, during its discussion.
Mr. Farris' point was primarily
that the policy being put forward
by the Borden Government is not
identically the same as that which
they supported two years ago when
iu opposition
He claimed that the 35 million
dollars which the government row
proposed to give to Britain should
be used to build ships at home.
This money will have to be borrowed from Britain and then given
back to her to spend among her
own workmen at home. Why not
Cauada spend the money in Cau-
ada among her own work people?
This policy taxes Cauada where
she is weakest and assists Great
Britian where she is strongest, aud
claims that the Borden Policy was
taxatioh without representation.
Me said tenders had been asked
for the building of battleships for
Canada both in Great Britain and
in Canada, and that the cost would
be much greater to have them built
in Canada, but thought the difference was worth it to the nation
Kngland does not need the
The speaker also paid a tribute
to the Conservatives by saying that
they had the best system of running elections in this country.
At the conclusion of his address
Mr. Leo Anderton, the chairman,
announced that if any one wished
they were at liberty to ask questions. A gentleman in the audience wanted to know what interest
the working classes had in building
a navy for exploitation by the
capitalistic classes. Mr. William
Duncan and Mr. Colin Campbell
also made a few remarks, in which
'they showed that Grtat Britain
was a shipbuilding nation, from
whom nearly all nations purchased
battleships. That it would cost 75
million dollars to get ready to build
the first ship and that Canada
would have t' en to import workmen and engineers to build them,
and pay much higher wages than
Britain, both for men to build the
ships and men to man them.

off her course towards I'o'u; Mlclieau (which name is a corruption of

was named Si. Michael). The ship

That the sio'y of the loss of this
treasure ship was true was shown lu
the year 1900, when a big storm swepi
over this shore and a piece of oak
keel 40 feet long, with copper holts,
came ashore. Further proof was
given by Ihe finding of many gold
coins on the western beach, one man
finding six coins. This created much
interest in the Point Micheau gold, so
that hundreds went there. The
bench was plowed and drugged, hut no
more gold was got at the time
The piece owned by Mr. Almon was
found last June and and owned by
Mr. Taylor. It was obtained through
Wm. M . Murphy of Point Micheau.
Tho coins were all of gold, dated 172a
to 1780. Mr. Almon states that In
Ins French histories mention lias been
made of ships leaving Prance with
gold for l.ouisburg, and he thinks
that through further study the story
of this ship could he secured in full
detail in some of the histories or
from  the  French  navy  records.

Montreal New Possesses a Handsome
Building for  its  Pictures
A new e;a In matters artistic in
Montreal ha.-, been Inaugurated by the
opening of the Art Gallery jusi built
by  the Arl  Association ol thai  <'iiy.
! aided by generous coatrlbutlous from
a   few   public mind, d   citizens,       .Vol
j only will ii mean a big step in advance by.those who have striven so
hard, and with so much success, to
make Montreal an art centre, bul  ii
; will make a substantial addition to
ilie utlrai Cons of the city tor residents
an I \ lsHoi'8 alike.
i'p till now Montn al iiu.". ha I nn
publ'c picture gallery . The city is
peculiarly rich In urtistlc treasures,
bul mosl of them are either in private
collections or in the semi-private collection of Hie Ari Association.
ihe An Association has hitherto
existed exclusively for its members.
It has had ii certain social prestige
lhai has always been carefully maintained, notwithstanding that its rules
and Us fees have placid bul little restriction on ihe qualifications for
membership,     From time to lime the
j question of extending 'is usefulness
by giving the general public free ac-
1 cess tb its galleries has been discussed, hut it has always been f l! that
this would destroy the essential e'nir-
lacter of Ihe institution, for which  Its
j leading  members  have  worked  hard
land made many sacrifices.
A year or two ago there came the
bequest of the famous Learniont collection of pictures by modern and ancient masters���a collection of almost
; priceless value. On" condition attached  to  the bequest   wus  lhat   Ihe
I galleries in which the pictures were
; displayed should he open free to Ihe
'public for two days in every week,
The bequest thus focused the question of public privileges Into a crisis
In  the  history  of the association���a
crisis  thai  was  accentuated   by  the
i fact  that there was no room in the
! old building in which to hang the collection.
The net result was a quickening of
Interest that   ultimately   determined
I the council of Mie association to sell
the old Ait. Gallery���which  lie'ng  In
i the centre of tlie shopping district
had greatly enhanced Its value���aud
lo erect a new building commensurate in size and dignity with the city
of Montreal.     It was further decided
jthat   Ibis new Art Gallery  should  be
i open lo the public free for two days
I in every week. Thus, when, on December 9, the building was opened by
II. It. II. the Duke of Connaugiht, a
new and valuable centre for th ! elevation of the public taste will be
placed freely at Ihe disposal of the
citizens, while at Ihe same lime an
opportunity will he given them ol
seeing many of tbe treasures In priv
ale collections, fur the mosl comprehensive loan exhibition ever hell In
Canada is being arranged for the occasion.
The building is on Sherbrooke-street
in the centre ef ihe most fashionable
residential district, aud quite close to
Hie magnificent Illtz-Cnrlton Hotel
now nearly finished. Il is of marble
throughout, much ef ihe interior fittings being of marble quarried and
sculptured in Italy. Th.? lingo columns surmounting Hie slops at the
entrance are solid monoliths which
Hie architect ela':n-are ihe largest on
tho American continent.     The design
: inside and  out,  is on  simple classic
! lines harmoniously blending into an
impressive and dlgnl.fled whole. Pi-
side a pleasant, relief to Hie white
marble is afforded by balustrad'.ng of
' dull bronze and capitals and liases for
ihe columns of the same metal.
Perhaps  one  reason  why  iho  fool

The Proposed Water Co.
(by a member of the Board of Trade)
At tlie last   meeting  of tlie   Hoard of
Trade the question of forming a municipality and of  the  proposed  water company was discussed.
Two points were remarkable in the
discussion. Firstly that the most earnest
and sincerely convinced opponents of tlie
idea of incorporation were also the pro-
motors of anil the apologists fur the water company. Secondly the water com-
pany advocates were filled witli philanthropic zeul for the public welfare and
a lack of the prevailing hunger for making handsome profits for their investments to a degree tliat was altogether too
good for this wicked world. Therejwas
Ur. Millard, who has discovered (since
this would-be company has been started)
that the need for pure water is an urgent question. Dr. Millard is most concerned because Mr. Fecliner's buildings
have no pressure supply in case of fire.
Mr. Fechner, on tlie other hand only
wishes to look to Dr. Millard's interests. Mr. Morrison wishes to keep outside tne municipality anyway, but lie
tninks pure water good wholesome stuff
for Dr. Millard and Mr. Fechner. They
one and all disdained tile idea that they
are out to make money. Of course they
are not. To be sure the municipality is
bound to come in a year or two, and the
first duty of the municipality will be as
has been the case in the last few weeks
at Alberni, to take over the private water company, and to do this tlie unfortunate city will have to pay 30 per cent,
more than the company cati persuade a
lenient arbitrator they have spent,
but as the company only propose to
spend thiry-five thousand, dollars, and
are uot likely to spend more than forty-
thousand, the city will only have to pay
twelve or fifteen thousand dollars to
ihese philanthropists for their public
There is no doubt that a good water
supply is becoming a necessity for Courtenay. But we can pay much too high a
price. The whole idea of letting a private company exploit the real needs of
is left lo chew the dry husks of sewer
building and road repairs, while a few j
greedy mouths enjoy the kernel. While
a city cati show a profitable asset like
water and light it can get cheap money
in any market: Aud why ? because it
am show tlie lenders that their priclpal
is safe and their interest is safe. Mark
tlie difference when a small city is trying
to borrow money for sewer making. |
Some of these company promoters
when they were opposing the municipalization of Courtenay had the nerve to adduce Cumberland as au awful example of
what happens to municipalities. But
what is the matter with Cumberland ?
Why is the city so hard up ? Why can't
they raise a cent ? Just for the reason
that the private water company lias for
years been putting large profits ill their
pockets which should have been pouring
into the city coffers. Cumberland is a
sucked orange. And then these company
gentlemen have the face to bring it up as
aa awful example, when it is just the
same thing that they are trying to do to
